Fructose is a simple sugary, usually found in fruit. It is different from glucose in that is does not cause blood sugar to rise a great deal and is primarily processed in your liver. The part of not greatly affecting your blood sugar sounds great, but we will explore how this sugar is often over consumed resulting in very negative health consequences.
When you consume fructose in normal levels, which Americans usually do not (25 grams or less per day), fructose does not have negative consequences. Americans consume fructose 300% to 600% per day over the recommended level. Consuming too much fructose overwhelms the livers ability to process it. When the liver is overwhelmed by fructose instead of converting it into usable blood sugar your liver turns the excess into fat and releases in directly into the blood stream as triglycerides.
Pullups are a great resistance training exercise.
Resistance Training: Bulking Up Versus Toning Up
Resistance training is sometimes referred to as strength training or weight training. This type of exercise increases your muscular strength with weights (resistance) such as a dumbbell, barbell, resistance bands, or your own body weight.
Resistance training can increase muscle strength and bone density as well as produce denser, stronger muscles. This is not to knock aerobic exercise; it is also very important. However, many people underestimate the value of incorporating resistance training into their workouts, and I don’t want you to make the same mistake. The bottom line is that you will get the best results when you combine both aerobic and resistance training for a synergistic training effect.

An effective and healthy workout has several components, including a warm-up, some stretching, cardio training, resistance training, and a cool-down.
Categories of Exercise
All exercise can be categorized as either aerobic (meaning with oxygen) or anaerobic (without oxygen).
Aerobic training refers to a type of longer-term energy use in the body that requires the presence of oxygen molecules. Examples include jogging, walking, moderate bike-riding, and aerobics classes (now you know where the name came from). Aerobic exercise also activates your immune system, helps your heart pump blood more efficiently, and increases your stamina over time.
Gary Collins: Today, we’re going to get into a little controversial subject that has drawn some attention over the last week, and Heath, explain some of the fire and some of the things that have gone on. First, we want to start with, this relates to our previous episode, where we talked about getting your advice from the wrong people. If you get a chance, watch that episode, because it will directly tie into this one, as well.
This one’s going to be about a couple of specific individuals. One, Jimmy Moore, who recently has brought some issues to the spotlight that we want to address. Go ahead, Heath, and talk about what has been going on.
Heath Squier: Absolutely. Another episode, too, this ties into is consuming too many calories can make the fat.
A, we’re going to be touching on exposing Jimmy Moore and his failed diet, along with the advice he’s dispensing is not only hurting himself. It’s also hurting others.

During my younger years I was very physically active and managed to maintain a healthy weight, despite consuming a terribly unhealthy diet. However, since most of us move less as we age, adjustments to diet must be made to avoid disease, illness, pain, and depression. In other words, proper nutrition must ultimately be addressed to avoid an unhappy and unhealthy you in the teenage years and beyond.
Even though your upbringing is just one factor that may play a role in your current physical condition, there seems to be other major contributors to the increasingly heftier and unhealthier American population. How so?
